Consider a round bob with side-swept bangs. It’s easy on the nape and with flattering effects courtesy of the bangs styled to the side.

#13: Long Bangs

An inverted bob takes on a new shape as the jaw-length cut features long bangs as its lead feature. A feathered cut gives a wind-swept appearance that softens your whole image.

#16: Textured for Fine Hair

The more layers you add to inverted bob, the bouncier your fine hair can get! Also, the blonde highlights on brown hair make every strand looks greater, creating the perfect balance with bangs.

#17: Wispy Bangs

Choose your favorite color and inverted bob haircut with bangs. My favorite thing about an inverted haircut is the combination of modern color and a classic shape, especially with wispy bangs. An inverted cut works best on fine to medium hair texture and someone who doesn’t mind spending some time styling in the morning. I recommend investing in a great flat iron and a heat protectant spray to create a smooth and sleek finish. My choice is the GHD Platinum+ Styler and Davines ‘This Is An Invisible No Gas Spray.’

#18: Shaggy Inverted Bob

The tone is just the right amount of fun but keeps it professional for the corporate world. She had come in with faded dark brown and a few highlights. I heavily highlighted her hair using Goldwell’s Silklift lightener.  Her cut is a slightly inverted shaggy bob with a fringe. The subtle graduation and soft layering throughout were cut with a feather razor to create natural movement in the hair.

When selecting a haircut paying attention to face shape is key. You always want to create the illusion of an oval shape. This is most predominately created around the hair with face-framing and fringes. My client has an oval face shape making my job easy. The cut is easy to maintain and style. She is a mom, so the ease of getting ready is key. With the texture created in an inverted bob haircut, she can let it air dry and get the same effect.

#19: Heavy Bangs

The waves and layers make an inverted cut all beautiful but the bangs really take it away! Bold bangs cut your face and flatters it for a contemporary look.

How would you describe this look?

An inverted bob cut with bangs is shorter at the back with longer pieces in front to keep the length around the face. There is a lot of texture to create movement and airiness in the style. I love how the blunt bangs make a statement and open up her side profile.

Any advice for someone considering it?

It would be great for anyone who has naturally wavy or straight hair. The bangs do require heat styling in order for them to lay straight.

A little pomade helps to enhance the texture and define the layers. The client in the picture has a round face, but the longer pieces help elongate her face.

#20: Inverted A-Line Bob

A pronounced angle brought to you by an inverted a-line bob. The straight texture of the cut, even the angled bangs, creates a very neat look.

How would you describe this look?

It is the epitome of a classy, elegant style that screams for attention. It is perfect if you are looking for a stylish cut that is low-maintenance yet modern. The inverted style has been very popular over the last several years and is even referred to as a power cut for women who are in leadership positions in various business ventures.

Also, this particular client of mine was gifted with gorgeous, soft, flawlessly sleek, and healthy hair that has a good medium-density as well as a smooth texture that isn’t too thick, too coarse, or too thin – it’s just right. Her hair cooperates so nicely when blown out that it’s like silk. I hardly ever had to manipulate it with any styling products or hot tools, so an inverted haircut was absolutely perfect for her intriguing personality, her unique features, her stunning beauty, and her laid-back lifestyle.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Before you make the decision to chop off your locks, be sure that you take into consideration:

What is your face shape? Consult with your stylist on whether an inverted bob will complement your face. A bob cut style suits almost all face shapes. If you have a round or square face, cutting layers to slim down wide cheeks and adding bangs to cover a wide forehead are two things you can do to make it all come together nicely. If you have a square face, make sure your bob ends below your chin. It softens the angles of your face. You can even let your frontal strands reach your shoulder for an ultra-dramatic statement.

Layers mean constant maintenance and regular trims. Visit your stylist every 4-6 weeks. In certain cases regarding hair texture, getting layers will mean having to style your hair daily. Keeping a round brush and a hairdryer will come in handy.

For those whose hair tends to get oily and greasy, especially at shorter lengths, you may have to wash it more frequently than normal in order to keep it looking decent and fresh, so be wary before making that big change!

#21: Swoop Bangs

Such a style has lasted for ages and it’s because the simple bob is magnified by an angular cut. A bob look is furthermore revolutionized by conspicuous side-swept bangs.

How would you describe this look?

I like to do both cut and color for my clients. Because I think that the color is the soul of the cut, it can enhance the overall look. I like to match the lifestyle and hairstyle of my clients, so I layered the cut first. Then, I outlined to leave more movement in shape, as soft edges make it look more feminine but still geometric.

The idea of color was to enhance her blue eyes, and the shadow root was a solution for this and of course the soft powdery nude blonde. I lightened the roots, cleanse the length, then tone roots first following the length. Then, I melted the roots into the length to make a soft transition.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Consultation is key. Think about if the look fits your lifestyle and hair condition, what will happen after going blonde, if you want change, and if you are ready to change some habits, clothes, makeup.

Also, during the consultation, ask about the look, how to style the cut, and what tools and products you’ll need to recreate the look. You should be ready to take care of it. Blonde ain’t cheap (treatments, styling). The cut will last up to 2 months but be ready to tone and treat your hair every 3 weeks to keep your look perfect. Trust your stylist.

#22: Medium Length Bob

Cutting your hair can be a really helpful trick to bring out a youthful change. Multiple layers bring out a bouncy medium-length bob with the long bangs that will flatter the whole appearance.

How would you describe this look?

A medium length inverted bob is sleek and modern yet versatile. My favorite thing about an inverted cut and style is that it works as edgy and professional while still being low enough maintenance for anyone.

Any advice for someone considering it?

The style is perfect when you want to lose some length and frame your face without committing to a shorter cut or short bangs.

While inverted bobs are low-maintenance, in order to maintain the shape and length, it should be touched/trimmed every 6-8 weeks.

#23: Blunt Bangs

An inverted long bob with bangs is in high demand right now, and why wouldn’t it be? It’s a timeless style that’ll never get old. It’s so versatile and can be adjusted any way you want it!

The cut is for the ladies who are wanting a low-maintenance cut but still wanting to switch her look up! It’s really up to you how you want to wear it and what your lifestyle is like.

For the women who do have to keep their hair out of their faces, inverted cuts are so versatile that it can be adjusted to a slight angle instead of having it so dramatic.
